A Puritan Theology
Doctrine for Life
ed. by Joel Beeke & Mark Jones
Kindle Price: $9.99

A Puritan Theology: Doctrine for Life offers a groundbreaking treatment of the Puritans’ teaching on most major Reformed doctrines, particularly those doctrines in which the Puritans made significant contributions. Since the late 1950s, nearly 150 Puritan authors and 700 Puritan titles have been reprinted and catalogued by Joel Beeke and Randall Pederson in their 2006 collection of mini-biographies and book reviews, titled, Meet the Puritans. However, no work until now has gathered together the threads of their teaching into a unified tapestry of systematic theology.

The Heart of Christ
Thomas Goodwin
Kindle Price: $2.99

The Heart of Christ’ was first published in 1651, and was the Puritan Thomas Goodwin’s most popular work. In the works Goodwin shows how Christ though now in heaven has the utmost love, concern, and tenderness toward those that are his on earth. This work would help comfort those who feel that Christ has no concern for them or has abandoned them.

The Death of Death in the Death of Christ
John Owen
Kindle Price: $.99

If you have wondered what the death of Christ accomplished or who Christ died for this work from John Owen is for you. He shows that Christ’s death saves, that God himself saves, without condition. It will strengthen your faith to be reminded that Christ died for you Christian and so your salvation is secure.

Glorious Freedom
The Excellency of Gospel Above Law
Richard Sibbes
Kindle Price: $3.99

In this work the puritan Richard Sibbes, author of ‘The Bruised Reed’, shows how God “sets us at liberty at the first in calling us…sets us at liberty when we are justified…sets us at liberty when he sanctifieth us…sets us then at liberty fully in glorification.”

Lectures to My Students
Charles Spurgeon
Kindle Price: $.99

“My college lectures are colloquial, familiar, full of anecdote, and often humorous they are purposely made so, to suit the occasion. At the end of the week I meet the students, and find them weary . . . and only in a condition to receive something which will attract and secure their attention, and fire their hearts.” Though best remembered as the most popular preacher of the Victorian era, C. H. Spurgeon was also founder and president of the Pastors College in London. He supervised the training of over 800 students, presided at an annual conference for ministers, and, on Friday afternoons, delivered regular lectures on every aspect of pulpit ministry.

The Atonement
In It’s Relation to the Covenant, The Priesthood, the Intercession of Our Lord
Hugh Martin
Kindle Price: $.99

Hugh Martin (1822-1885) modestly begins this work by acknowledging that it is not a systematic treatment of the Atonement. Whilst this is true, his approach provides answers to all the key questions regarding the necessity, extent, and nature of the Atonement. As the subtitle suggests he insists that a clear biblical view can only be arrived at when it is seen in the context of the eternal Covenant of Grace, Christ’s role as both Offering and Offerer, the ongoing work of His Intercession, and how our sin is imputed to Christ and His righteousness to His people. The Atonement is always under attack and this volume provides a framework against which erroneous views may be measured and rejected. Since modern denials simply repackage the same false ideas that Martin combated in his day, the arguments he advances remain relevant and necessary.

The Atonement of Christ
Francis Turretin
Kindle Price: $.99

Turretin’s writings had a formative influence on theologians of the calibre of Charles Hodge and others. His work on the Atonement of Christ demonstrates a depth and clarity of thought that makes it as relevant today as when he first wrote it. Its defence of all that the Lord Jesus Christ accomplished on behalf of His people, furnishes principles that effectively counter even contemporary attacks on the biblical doctrine of the atonement that Turretin himself could not have anticipated.
